Howdy ambitious subscribers, we’re sharing some learned knowledge about refinishing stucco walls. But, unfortunately, someone applied wrong or ugly patches on this Berkeley house.
We first pressure wash the mess or work the former plastering contractor did, then applied a bonding agent to the home walls.
This was used to hold the new stucco necessary to correct the last fella’s bad plaster patches around the windows.
We then applied three more boding agents’ coats over our new work.
We had to apply at least three coats of full-strength Weld Crete, a bonding agent, as the body of the house was painted at least ten times. Thus, we had to kill the suction of our newly applied patching around the windows.
The new patchwork would have ghosted through if we did not match the suction around the complete home and applied a new stucco finish. What does this mean?
All the new patchwork would bleed or ghost through the new stucco finish, plus there would be a noticeable texture change around each window.
Folks, there are many years of knowledge at work here.
Most folks can plaster after about five years of training.
However, the stucco knowledge in this video took a minimum of at least 15 years to acquire or resurfacing at least 20 homes to learn.
This I say not to discourage you from trying this yourself, but one should know their limitations,
that being said, this stucco resurfacing was just another day at the office for us.
Next, kick back, relax, and enjoy the video!
Oh yeah, don’t forget to save the world, like and subscribe. It’s not only good karma, but It also makes you feel warm and fuzzy all over.
